SECTION 19-5-7

§ 19-5-7. Voting rights.

No person shall be entitled to vote at any meeting who has not been a member of the credit union for more than three (3) months, but this restriction shall not apply during the first year of the existence of the credit union, nor shall it apply during the first three (3) months of the second year to any member who was a member at the end of the first year and who has been a member continuously since that time. No member shall have more than one vote, and no member shall be permitted to vote by proxy, unless expressly authorized by the bylaws or except as otherwise provided in this chapter. Any fraternal organization, voluntary association, partnership, or corporation holding membership may, by duly authorized agent, cast one vote at any meeting, but that agent shall not be eligible to election as an officer or as a member of the board of directors, credit committee, or supervisory committee unless that agent holds membership, as an individual, in the credit union.
